Sometimes you’re ahead; sometimes your behind…the race is long

Hey, let’s kick this Friday off with a motivational song. Here’s a little history first:

“Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young”, commonly known by the title “Wear Sunscreen”, is an essay written as a hypothetical commencement speech by columnist Mary Schmich, originally published in June 1997 in the Chicago Tribune.”

The essay, gives various pieces of advice on how to live a happier life and avoid common frustrations.

Baz Luhrmann turned it into a spoken word piece that was released in 1999 with the title Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen).

There’s great advice in the song, however, like the quote says above, it’s probably wasted on the young, but man does it make sense now to me as youth has passed, especially the part about the knees ;-).
